    See it all the time in the MDR on non and formal nights. Even on old guys. Depends on the Maitre D’ if your allowed to get in. If denied entry to the MDR, you can always return to your cabin and change. I’ve also seen those kind of PAXs , who make it their busines, complain to the Maitre D’ of someone wearing jeans, and insist the Maitre D’ remove Dress Code offenders. Good luck. King

    Bed on Balcony

    Princess will not allow you to move your bed to the balcony. But think it would be fun like a camping trip. King

    Carry on luggage limit

    Huh?.. “For 300 bucks that does sense unless your filthy rich.” What are you trying to say? “Also you could go to 99 cent store and buy and use and donate clothes. Then you have nothing to drag. Or take old clothes use abd dump” Are you suggesting to wear used clothes on your cruise? King

    Carry on luggage limit

    What doe it cost you for the service? Is it guaranteed your luggage will arrive and be delivered on time before the ship sails? And will the service pick up your luggage at debarkation and deliver your luggage back to your home? King

    Dining limitations

    In the MDR, I often order two or three meat or fish /shell fish entrees. I may eat it all, or just sample each. With pasta , sometimes I’ll request a smaller appetizer portion instead of the full entree. In the MDR, there is no limitation how much you eat, including appetizers and deserts. I’ve never been refused a request for multiple entriees, salads, soups, or deserts. It’s all you can eat. Good luck. King

    MDR for breakfast?

    Yes. Check the daily Patter sent to your cabin the night before. I order a grilled ribeye steak, 3 poached eggs, 4 waffles, 4 English muffins, maple syrup, Kerry French butter, fruit bowl , and 2 croissants. A pot of Earl Grey tea, and a mimosa (or two). Then I’m full until lunch. Good luck. King

    Sangria on the Regal

    You can ask for it in the MDR. Usually excellent to very good if ratio fresh fruit and wine has been combined properly. Enjoyed it every night. Good luck. King

    Ruby Princess to Hawaii? Yea or Nay?

    Yes. Have done the Hawaii cruise many times. Plenty of Hawaiian themed activities onboard for adults and kids. From beginner ukulele lessons (bring your own uke if you have ) there are limited number of loaners at the classes if you don’t, or buy one when you go ashore, hula lessons, lei making, food preparation, etc. Sorry, can’t comment Re: O.M. Enjoy.

    Dress Code - Regal Princess

    A poster on this thread said the Dress Code plaques have been removed from the entrance of the MDR’s. Is this true? Since? I will be sailing on Grand Princess to the Mexican Riviera in January 2019, and will look for the Dress Code plaques, and check the Patters as well.

    Dress Code - Regal Princess

    It’s interesting how the Dress Code has been relaxed since my February 2018 Hawaii cruise.

    Dress Code - Regal Princess

    I think you answered your own question. As you state, wear whatever you feel appropriate and comfortable in. Worse case scenario, the Maitre D’ will not allow you in the MDR. You can then always go back to your stateroom and change. Or dine at another venue ie. HC, IC, order room service, or a specialty restaurant?. However you choose to dress, enjoy your cruise. King
